Globba schomburgkii
Family: Zingiberaceae
Dancing Girl Ginger
Origin: South East Asia
Small shrub 2-5 ftShadeSemi-shadeKeep soil moistOrnamental foliageYellow/orange flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

This showey ginger forms clumps of mid-green, lance-shaped leaves, which has a heart-shaped base and is slightly hairy underneath. Each stem produces a terminal pendant inflorescence with yellow flowers. Water it abundantly while it is growing actively; less when it is dormant in winter. When temperatures fall below 65 degrees the plant goes dormant; at this time restrict watering to a maximum of once a week. Repot and divide plant when the growth period begins. Propagation by division or by seed in the spring. Divide rhizomes in spring when new growth emerges.

Globba winitii, Dancing Girl, Dancing Ladies Ginger

Globba winitii
Family: Zingiberaceae
Dancing Girl, Dancing Ladies Ginger
Origin: Thailand
Small shrub 2-5 ftShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterYellow/orange flowers

The plants slowly increase to form open clumps of greenery, but the real attraction is the unusual flowers. The inflorescence hangs down from the stem and is comprised of showy bracts in purple or white with tiny yellow flowers. The common name "dancing ladies" is derived from the way the flowers seem to dance in the air suspended from the bracts. The flowers will appear sporadically from July until dormancy in the fall.

Plant Globba winitii in fertile, organic, well-drained soil. They will go dormant in winter, so be sure to mark their spots, as they are among the last of the plants to reappear in spring. In colder climates, the rhizomes may be lifted in winter and stored in a cool garage or basement in slightly damp peat. These plants are virtually pest free and very easy to grow if given suitable conditions.

Provide full shade. Will tolerate a little sun if kept moist. Needs regular moisture in well drained soil during the growing season.

Hardiness: USDA Zones 8 - 11.

Propagation: Dancing ladies ginger is propagated by division of clumps during growing season or by cutting pieces of dormant rhizome.

Small shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

Elizabeth Hardy Ginger Lily is one of the the tallest and most imposing ginger lilies, both for size (6' stems) and for flower. Starting in late July, the towering 9' tall stalks of this Hedychium coccineum hybrid are topped with clusters of brilliant reddish-orange flowers with a salmon butterfly mark. In late afternoon, the exquisite honeysuckle-like fragrance wafts through the garden from its lofty perch. It was hybridized by Tom Wood.
